During the 1920s and 1930s, science fiction writers, filmmakers, and others used new forms of popular media to showcase the possibilities of space travel. Especially noteworthy are some of the realistic space science fiction films of that era. In some cases, rocket pioneers served as technical experts to assure scientific accuracy. Once such film is "Frau im Mond," released in 1929 by UFA. "Frau im Mond" was produced, directed, and written by Fritz Lang, story by Thea von Harbou, and Willy Ley and Hermann Julius Oberth served as technical advisors.
